    I tried downloading both and for some reason they won't. Almost as if they changed their minds or something........

    Other articles seem to work fine. Is it because too many people are trying to access the info? If so, I'll try later. Thanks!

    I ran into a delay in loading them but they do load and they do work.

    Great new look for an immensely important and useful site. I like the PDF format more and more the more I use it. Clean, sharp pages that are easy to read.

    I also like the fact that the PDF file uses less bandwidth than the identical page in html.

    Great job wiljen.

    Glad people are liking and using it. The other reason for going to PDF was the fact that it allows for download and read offline and on kindle, i-pad etc.

    Okay.....I got it to work this morning. Maybe I just wasn't patient enough! At least now I can figure out how to use the Belding and Mull reloading tool that's been languishing in a drawer for years.............

    Vickery and Howe V II gunsmithing books are coming up as an error 400. The rest worked out good for me. Thanks again

    Just checked the stats for April stats, over 10,000 downloads of the Sharpe, Hatcher, and NRA Cast bullets book and they weren't even up for a full month. Not too shabby.

    Out of curiosity from my ignorance, what does this mean in dollars to you Will? It sure is a neat thing that you are continuing to do for shooters, something the NRA seemed opposed to doing. We all owe you a debt of gratitude.

    The fundraiser last month has helped with the costs so we are in good shape through the middle of 2013 at present. Server costs for castpics are still well below the cost for CB as it is not a dedicated server and doesn't require the CPU time that a SQL backed forum does.
